From our research and interviews with adults who severely affected by Phubbing phenomena, we found out that technology is not the only causes of Phubbing effects.
Beatrice de Gelder, a cognitive neuroscientist & neuropsychologist, said: “Listening is more complicated than simply hearing and knowing languages.”
Even though technology changes the way we interact with each other, we still by nature are weak at retaining a conversation. It took an effort to listen by looking at the gesture, tone, facial expression and the context of the discussion.
We spend 60% of our communication time listening, but we only retain 25% of it. – Harvard Business Review
